Synopsis
High pressure moves offshore, allowing a warm front to slip
through southern new england. This will bring mild night to our
area, along with a few showers and chance of a thunderstorm.

Southern new england gets a taste of summertime heat on Sunday
along with isolated thunderstorms. A cold front moves through
and brings moderating temperatures, but still pleasantly warm
air. High pressure pushes off the coast early Tuesday. Low
pressure then moves through Tuesday bringing cooler temps and
rain, followed by periodic unsettled weather through Thursday
night. A cold front pushes offshore late next week, with drying
conditions and mild temperatures.

Near term until 6 am this morning
2 am update...

showers and scattered t-storms will be exiting eastern ma coast
during the next hour, then just a few showers and perhaps an
isold t-storm left to move through sne during the overnight.

Previous discussion...

isolated showers moving into western ma while weakening line of
convection moves east from central ny. This area will
overspread sne overnight as the low level jet brings a burst of
moisture advection and decreasing stability aloft. Isolated
t-storms possible as soundings indicate a saturated column and
conditional instability above the inversion leading to mucapes
200-400 j kg. It will be a mild night with lows ranging from mid
50s to near 60. Increasing SW winds overnight as the low level
jet moves overhead. Inversion will prevent strongest winds from
mixing down but should see a period of gusts to 25 mph.

Short term 6 am this morning through 6 pm Monday
Sunday...

showers exit during the morning as the warm front moves off to
the north east. Southern new england will be in the warm sector,
with dew points in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Mixing is
expected to reach 800 mb, with temps at that level supporting
max sfc temps in the low to mid 80s. Winds in the mixed layer
have a potential for 25-30 kt.

Stability parameters linger at near unstable levels but drier
air moves in at all levels above 750 mb. The dryness suggests it
will be difficult to generate convection, but the parameters
suggest it is not out of the question. We will mention slight
chance pops in eastern mass for showers tstms.

Sunday night...

west-northwest winds bring lower dew points move in behind the
cold front. Overall a dry night with temps falling back into the
50s.

Long term Monday night through Saturday
Highlights...

* dry and mild conditions for memorial day
* low pressure bring showers and cooler temps Tuesday
* a front lingers across the region Wed and Thu with unsettled
conditions and warming temperatures
* rain ending Friday with dry and seasonable conditions toward
the weekend
overview...

progressive pattern in the extended forecast, with a persistent
subtropical ridge over the central southern u.S. Directing a
series of shortwaves through sne during the workweek. This will
lead to periodic shower thunderstorm chances with a bit of a
roller coaster of high temperatures, warmer Monday and even
moreso Thursday. By next weekend we see indications of a drier
regime with high pressure in the vicinity.

Details...

memorial day...

a cooler and drier post frontal airmass will be in place for
memorial day as high pressure builds in to the north.

Temperatures top out around 10 degrees cooler than Sunday,
in the mid 70s (near 80 for ct valley), while dewpoints in
the 40s and low 50s mean less humidity. The exception will
be along the immediate coast, where high pressure and light
winds will allow for light onshore flow, keeping temps in
the 60s.

Tuesday through Thursday...

showers return early Tuesday with cooler temperatures as a
surface low pressure system approaches and crosses the region
from the west. Still some uncertainty on the track and
magnitude of this system. The ec has consistently brought
a stronger ~1004mb low directly over sne while the GFS keeps
it weaker and further south. Given the associated greater
forcing at 925 in the ec solution, it paints a far wetter
picture as well. For now, sticking with a blend of synoptic
guidance brining rain on Tuesday. Instability, though, looks
poor, so not expecting thunderstorms. Either way flow remains
onshore Tuesday keeping high temps in the upper 50s and low
60s... Mid to upper 60s inland.

Rain clears out briefly early Wednesday before the next
system approaches Wednesday night into Thursday. This one with
several hundred j kg of CAPE so we could see some thunderstorms
overnight into early Thursday. A brief break in the rain
follows, early-mid day Thursday, before the approaching cold
front brings more widespread rain and potential for
thunderstorms to all of southern new england late Thursday into
early Friday.

Wednesday and Thursday we'll see increasing temperatures each
day as a warm front slowly makes its way north on southerly
flow, placing southern new england fully in the warm sector by
Thursday. This is associated with a surface low over the great
lakes moving into southeast canada. Cloudcover will limit solar
insolation Wednesday but temps manage to get into the 60s-70s.

Thursday is our warmest day of the week, with 850mb temps
approaching 16-18c, leading to surface highs in the 80s. Some
deterministic model runs continue to predict even hotter temps
Thursday, but for now keeping things in the low to mid 80s.

Glancing at the eps, only 1-2 of the 50+ members want to bring
90+ highs to pvd or bdl Thursday (even less for bos). This of
course depends on the timing of the approaching cold front which
if it were to speed up could limit our warming.

Friday and Saturday...

the cold front passes sometime around late Thursday night early
Friday morning, bringing showers to an end as pwats drop to
<0.5" and cooler NW winds return. Under large scale troughing
but generally zonal flow, things look to dry out as we head into
the weekend under high pressure. Seasonable temperatures are
expected, in the mid to upper 70s for most with increasingly
clear skies.
